Default Re: Core i7 Overclocking thread

There's a Dynamic Vcore option in the Advanced CPU Voltage Settings of the latest BIOS's.

To use it, set the Vcore voltage to "Normal" and then add or subtract the amount needed to reach your target Vcore. E.G. If you have your Vcore in BIOS set to 1.2750v. When I set the Vcore to "Normal", it is set to 1.2125v. Therefore, I set the "Dynamic Vcore Voltage" to +.0625v which results in my target voltage of 1.2750 = 1.2125v + .0625.

This also allows if you enable the power saving features C1E etc. it will drop your the voltage at idle unlike setting a default VCORE where it wont.
